Arsenal defender Nacho Monreal is wanted by Barcelona

That’s according to reports in Spain that claim the Catalan club are looking for a replacement for Lucas Digne following his exit to Everton.

Monreal was Arsenal’s first-choice left-back last season and has just returned from injury.

Moreno is down the pecking order at Liverpool with Jurgen Klopp preferring Andy Robertson.

Mundo Deportivo claim Monreal could be interested in a switch to the Nou Camp as his final move as he enters the final years of his career.

The reports cite Sead Kolasinac as an able replacement for the Spaniard.

Liverpool would likely be ready to sell Moreno at the right price and Manchester United full-back Matteo Darmian is also linked in the reports.

Former Chelsea defender Filipe Luis is also mentioned as a possible target for Barcelona.

Jordi Alba remains the first-choice left-back so if Monreal or Moreno were to join they would likely be backup for Ernesto Valverde’s side.

Barcelona have kicked off the new La Liga season with three straight wins.

Last time out before the international break they beat Huesca 8-2.

Meanwhile another Barcelona target, United superstar Paul Pogba has opened up on potentially moving to the Nou Camp.

“I’m under contract,” Pogba said when questioned about Barcelona. “There were little things with the coach [Mourinho], the relationship is always the same.

“We have goals in common, we want to win, that’s all that matters.

“As long as you do not see me with the Barcelona jersey, it’s because I’m in Manchester. It will always be rumours.”
